Kentucky Derby Strong for NBC

NBC’s coverage of the 133rd Kentucky Derby on Saturday delivered one of its strongest ratings since 1992, earning an 8.3/13 overnight rating/share from the beginning of NBC’s coverage (5:00 p.m.) to the close according to figures released by Nielsen Media Research.

Building momentum throughout the afternoon and early evening, the ‘Derby’ peaked during the racing portion from 5:45-6:45 p.m., delivering a 9.8/21 overnight rating/share, up by more than 10% over last year’s number (8.9/20).

The 8.3/13 figure was up more than 12% over last year (7.4/12).

    Naive fans love watching steroid and blood doped ponies race loaded up with Salbutamol, Viagra, liquid amphetamines and corticosteroids.

    Some freaks even wager on drugged animals.

    btw: the race appeared fixed. No way a horse can move up from 19th position using an ‘open sprinters lance’. Only in a fixed race.

    Barbaro was a great example of what eventually happens to all Derby equines.

    But aren’t the Horses put through doping and steroid testing winstolv?

    I admit that seeing Street Sense move up from 19th to 1st was very unexpected, but it would have to be extremely difficult (perhaps next to impossible) to pull off the fixing of a Horse race.

    Let me put it this way…..NO!

    No tests whatsoever for:
    exogenous testosterone
    eGH
    insulinglucose
    Viagra
    EPO microdosing
    blood transfusions
    Bute

    Drug testing is a public relations deception.

    Barbaro was a pharmaceutical lesson.

    btw: fixing any race is very easy to do. Very lucrative too.

    No way the sprinter’s lane gets left opened in a clean race.

    I heard that the horses were put through doping and steroid testing. I guess it appears they are tested for certain substances, but not for others.

    Interesting.

    “No way the sprinter’s lane gets left opened in a clean race.”

    Ah, hello. Do you go to the races much? Do not read the past performance comments…3 wide, 4 wide, 5 wide, 6 wide around the final turn. It’s lazy jockeys. Give Borel some credit for outsmarting.

    On the drug not. They do test for bute! The others I don’t know. But Viagra? Would be a little hard to keep the horse’s mind on running, wouldn’t it? I’m not disagreeing that horses don’t get medicated; however, it is very regulated.

    It appears winstolv is rather angry and bitter for some odd reason.
